Respiratory therapists are vital for ensuring patients and clinicians move from one location to another safely, whether the transport is a trip to radiology or movement to another facility. This panel discussion will focus on major areas of patient and clinician safety for both intra- and inter-facility transport, including impact of transport on medical interventions and the patient’s hemodynamic status as well as maintaining team and crew safety during transport.
